Nope, you've got my 'hint'. ;-)

IMHO, it's simply unworkable to have major stuff going on in one module, 
over two branches, at the same time. We've been there before with the 
docs and Cocoon2. Now however, some people were quite vocal in 
explaining they still wanted to stick to one module & branch. If they do 
the actual work, they get to decide how things are done (tm). But 
vice-versa as well, of course, which seems to be what Carsten is 
pointing at.

See Sylvain's reply as well.

I'm +1 on a 2.2 module, and +1 on 2.1.1 on Friday. Fortress might be 
something for 2.2 rather than 2.1.1, but I'll leave that to the people 
doing the actual work to decide.
